Though intended only for the eyes of his beloved in England, this diary written by James Bell, sailor on the voyage of the good ship Planter to Australia in 1838, provides a unique insight into the experience of sailing to Australia in the middle of the Nineteenth Century. An invaluable addition to the history of the emigrant ships to Australia.

James Bell's diary lay in obscurity for about 150 years and then was amazingly found on a market stall and auctioned at Bonham's, where it was acquired by the State Library of South Australia. He died a year after arrival in Adelaide, from a 'brain infection'.
